What you need to do if you have taken a dd or real raw image dump of a hard disk:
VBoxManage convertdd windows2019-eval-template.img windows2019.vdi --format VDI
The .img is the raw dd dump and the .vdi is the output file.
--format VDIspecifies to output to .vdi format
If you are in a pinch you can always use qemu-kvm binary and manually specify the .img as your disk and i........
The main use I have for this is virtual servers being able to use an LVM volume but not occupying all of the space. It saves time in deploying machines and copying them so you are only copying the space they are using (eg. 5GB / 60GB vs the full 60GB). There are some disadvantages which is mainly the fact that thin pools by their nature allow you to "overallocate" disk space which is that you could use more space than is available on the disk itself and corrupt your data........
Change Host="192.168.5.99" with the remote IP allowed(this is of course more secure but also cumbersome if your IP changes). You could also have a single layer of protection that specifies the IP via firewall or both (of course both are far mor secure).
UPDATE user SET Host="192.168.5.99" where Host="localhost"
or for any/wildcard
UPDATE user SET Host="%" where Host="localhost&qu........
If Linux Mint 17 or other has no window buttons/controls you can do the following from terminal:
Sometimes it can be fixed if you go to your themes/appearance and choose a new one but in the case like mine where Compiz is installed but not running/working then that fix will not work and will require the marco command above.
What if you can't type in a terminal Window?
If you close........
Thsi is very handy when doing your own kernel development.
-m specifies how much ram (in the example it is 768MB)
-kernel specifies the path to the kernel file
-net tap,ifname=tap1,script=no (the ifname=tap1 is what you need to change and setup manually).
*Run "tunctl -b" to create a tap device and use the one it gives you for ifname=

The example below converts youvm.img into a vdi.
The -O vdi specifies the new format will be vdi but you can use any other valid formats/vice versa.
qemu-img convert yourvm.img -O vdi yourvm.vdi
This is very handy for those who need to switch between virtualization technologies.........
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

This is very handy if you're too busy and don't have time to download whatever files you need.
The -D specifies the domains allowed, this is because I specified -H which means foreign hosts are allowed, if you don't restrict them you'll end up going to the whole internet via ads and other links just like a search Engine would follow.
-l 0 specifies to go deep, to as many levels as possible/as exist.
-e robots=off is important because robots.txt often says you can't vie........
It really is as simple as:
cdrecord -v dev=/dev/sr0 pathtoyourisoimage.iso
-v is for verbose, I prefer it but if you don't you won't see as much output like below (I like to know the details and exactly what's happening)
dev=/dev/sr0 specifies the device name of your burner (they say not to use it and to specify some weird annoying device string but using the raw /dev has always worked for me and is how it should have been implemented from the start IMHO)........
If you have a webserver and find you have high IO/lagginess MySQL is one of the first things to check. It turns out MySQL was my problem and it was creating a high load on my server, especially for IO.
How to Enable MySQL Slow Query Logging To Find Slow Performance/Queries
Add this anywhere under [mysqld]

genuine.com/IN: loading master file genuine.com.zone: file not found
_default/genuine.com/IN: file not found
I always found it silly that no one really talks about this and apparently many like me and even control panels like Plesk were still using hard paths. I always thought "why can't I just specify the name of the zone file and have bind find it". Surely the default search path must be /var/named or somewhere else but there is no such thing.........
This is a great way to use your ftp server space, for example on your web hosting account (althoughI believe many hosts don't allow storage like this), but if you have a VPS/Dedicated Server etc.., this would be perfect. Imagine how easy it is to work with an ftp account that you can just mount as a normal partition or directory in Linux, it would be great for backups etc..
curlftpfs - mount a ftp host as a local directory
Asterisk FreeBSD compile problemsI couldn't get it to compile without using the following options at compile time:
make install WITHOUT_ZAPTEL=YES WITHOUT_MYSQL=YES WITHOUT_FAX=YES WITHOUT_ODBC=YES WITHOUT_H323=YES[/b:b7d672ee28]Some problems you might have with copying over your Linux config files to FreeBSD is different paths.
[b:f044931f41]For example the etc path for Asterisk on BSD will now be:[/b:f044931f41]
Live E-mail VerficationTwo very cool tutorials that actually connect to the supposed mail server of whatever address the user specifies to see if the e-mail address actually exists.

Note this will work for any version of CentOS and basically any version of Redhat Linux or Redhat based distribution.
You would need to create a new file

Backing MySQL Databases
Backing Up/Dumping All Mysql Databases To A Single File
mysqldump --all-databases -u admin -p > allmysqldatabases.sql
The "-all-databases" clause is pretty obvious isn't it? It means that it will backup all databases.
The "-u admin" means login using the user "admin", if you h........
